We also have a special dinner/theatre tickets package available for Second City's show at the Emerald Theatre -- call for details!"

This dine-in place with white cloths and flashy artificial red-white-and-pink flower arrangements offers tasty Jamaican staples not widely available in the area, such as rich, fatty oxtail, curry goat, tilapia, red snapper, kingfish and, if you’re lucky, the traditional ackee and codfish. Tripe and cow feet are offered for home folks who really want to wax nostalgic. The eatery also imports sorrel, which in Jamaica grows in the fields and sports a beautiful red flower. Dried and mixed with ginger, boiled and steeped, it results in a cloudy brown drink, served in a big bottle, plenty to take home. It looks like a dark homemade apple cider, but its taste is fiery ginger.

The Detroit News: Michigan's Best Outdoor Terrace Dining
"Open the submarine-style portal to Tin Fish Resort, in Fair Haven, and you'll feel like sailing over the wide blue waters of nearby Anchor Bay. Perched a few stories above the shoreline, Tin Fish has three outdoor tiered decks, as well as a Tiki Bar, with live bands Wednesday through Sundays, beginning the Wednesday before Memorial Day. The indoor dining room is stunning, with a snaking bar that offers an aquamarine aquarium as backdrop. At the height of the sunshine season, Tin Fish feeds a sea of people angling for good food and good times. The solid, modern menu offers everything from angels on horseback appetizer (bacon-wrapped broiled sea scallops), escargot in garlic and burgundy, a truly memorable pasta trio with andoiulle sausage, chicken and shrimp, plus standards such as prime rib, surf and turf, and a sensational steak Oscar, topped with asparagus and bernaise. Tin Fish--pure-gold Fish."
"Tropical motif. Excellent seafood selection. The service is as friendly as the menu is varied, from Hull Hull Ribs to Chicken Havana Banana. Island cocktails (served in real coconuts), flavored margaritas by the yard, entertainment, Ohana feasts and Key West style-parties."

When G.G. Allin died in 1993, a lot of people breathed a sigh of relief. As Tesco Vee once said, “This feces-encrusted, jockstrap-wearin’ stinkbag was just gross.” That said, audiences flocked to see Allin’s transgressive, often coprophagic performances, to experience that mixture of fear and awe only the “rock ’n’ roll terrorist” could evoke. Allin has been gone two decades now, but a version of his backing band, the Murder Junkies, still tours, playing the Allin catalog, which includes such colorful ditties as “Anal Cunt” and “Raw, Brutal, Rough and Bloody.” The bill is rounded out with Busby Death Chair, Sons of Strippers, Public Sex and Dolly Rocker Ragdoll.
Fred Thomas of His Name Is Alive loves to fuck with people by taking left turns and throwing musical curveballs at every given opportunity, and a few opportunities that weren’t given at all. Experimental indie pop is the order of the day here, Ann Arbor native Thomas soaking in a ton of Detroit soul and coming out the other side with something that sounds like Mayer Hawthorne fronting Weezer. Kinda. The band has been around since ’99, which seems bizarre, though; they didn’t play any shows until 2002. Now the band is flying, and 2013 sees a new album, One Kiss Ends it All.
If Björk taught us anything, it’s that English-language acts from Iceland are going to be awesome, and Of Monsters and Men follow that train of thought quite nicely. The winners of the 2012 Músíktilraunir (an annual battle of the bands in Iceland), these guys put out their debut album, My Head is an Animal, the following year. Though the guys in the band do sport some tremendous facial hair, they’re exaggerating with the animal reference. This summer, the band will be all over the world hitting the major festivals, so let’s enjoy them while they’re here. The “King and Lionheart” single promises great times ahead.
Detroit artist Graem Whyte’s practice explores the space between architecture and fine art. His work utilizes a wide array of materials and often combines mythology, architecture, Chewbacca, the landscape, and patterns of mathematics and nature with a wry sense of humor.
